L’Art de la rue

I see a lot of artful graffiti in Palaiseau. Today we went to the Centre Commercial because Gergö needed a coat and also because we both are excessively excited about Sunday shopping.

There is a some building going on at the supermarket at the moment and some mobile construction walls were put up around the building site. Today we saw sprayers at work on them. I didn’t take any pictures (I rarely dare ask), but it reminded me of all the other graffiti pictures I took in Palaiseau:

Graffiti in Palaiseau

On our path along the Yvette there’s an underpass underneath the highway and the TGV, that’s full of graffiti. Last week was the first time we visited the second tube. The dark tunnel is creepy in itself, but it’s also covered in creepy clowns:

Seriously, who ever thought clowns were funny? Clowns aren’t funny. Another time, we walked to the centre commercial from the town centre instead of our appartment. At some point, close to a sports field, we took a wrong turn and found another underpass with a few more artful graffiti:

Love the octopus

There was a lot of Picasso-style graffiti. But it was impossible to take pictures because the walkway along a branch of the Yvette was too close to the wall containing all the graffiti.

This bleeding flower is on the playground in town centre, along rue de Paris.

These two are pictures I see every time I walk to the shops. Gergö is most impressed by the Wu Tan Dog. I quite like the gorilla. And the graffito is nicely executed as well!
